The Road. A place that inspires both composing music and listening to it.

In this episode of Mondo Jazz we'll focus on music about a road to Timbuktu, French, Italian and Brooklyn streets, being on the road and the road as a metaphor for a jazzist's necessary openness to the unexpected. Not to mention, jazz inspired by the soundtrack of Federico Fellini's "La Strada" [The street, in Italian].
